As the main Star Wars saga concludes, I came across this blast from the past (see photo which for some reason has rotated 90deg).
This was very much in keeping with the cheeky Linn & Naim marketing at the time but timeless in its message nonetheless.
The main difference for mine is that the Source these days starts at the mastering/file quality, pre the turntable / CD player.
So, before any of you go any further, be warned, this is the SPOILERS!!! thread!
Last chance, turn back now.
You've been told.
Let's get to it.
I thought it would be fun to revive the vote for your best and worst of the Star Wars movies. Sorry, no spoofs, other series etc... Order of movies in poll in chronological order.
(Previous poll did not survive the migration from DTVForum. )
My best remains Episode IV: A New Hope. Saw the theater release, have the video, dvd and BD versions, says it all. It is very hard to beat for nostalgia and impact.
Worst, is Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Having said that, I watched the entire sequence in release order a few years ago, and it was not as bad as I recalled. Perhaps something to do with getting old.
Definitely a left field pick, but will use Rogue One as the movie to introduce someone to the Star Wars series. The end of Rogue One fits nicely into A New Hope. Will someone be baffled by The Force? There was mention of the Force but it does not manifest itself in an overt sense like the other movies. So, it should not distract. Vader's relatively short stint in the movie and his show of power will leave a new viewer wanting to learn more in subsequent movies. Yes, Rogue One was intended to be an anthology, to fill a back story. But it is good enough, in my opinion, to start the series. And with modern CGI, good picture and audio, it should get someone hooked into the series.
May the Force(ful) (debate) be with you...
